Poetry by Maria Laina

Translated by Karen Van Dyck

Hers, a collection of poetry by Maria Laina translated by Karen Van Dyck, was just published by World Poetry Books.

She has nothing to say.
She simply touches herself
and watches herself
and wants


While whole phrases pass by and she accepts them
and she constantly faces great danger
still the body she remembered
but there was something she had never seen.
